This Week's Interesting Music Releases - February 4, 2014

Marissa Nadler

Marissa Nadler's July and Nicole Atkins' Slow Phaser are fantastic new albums by two of my favorite singer-songwriters.

Broken Bells's After the Disco, Xiu Xiu's Angel Guts: Red Classroom, and the compilation This is the Town: A Tribute to Nilsson (Volume 1) are also highly recommended.

Of special note to literature fans is Leyla McCalla's Vari-Colored Songs: A Tribute to Langston Hughes.

Reissues include vinyl editions of Four Depeche Mode albums, Black Celebration, Music for the Masses, Some Great Reward, and Songs of Faith and Devotion.

What new releases are you picking up this week? What can you recommend? Have I left anything noteworthy off the list?
